This lovely zipped tote comes in light pearl gray, caramel, and sable, as well as the black we’re featuring here. If you’re not familiar with the brand Cuyana, readers have been singing its praises for years. They make really simple, basic bags that are affordable, too — this one is $195. If you choose the “Lean Closet” option at checkout, Cuyana sends you a reusable bag (and a shipping label) for you to send back donated clothing (for H.E.A.R.T.) in exchange for a $10 credit toward your next purchase.
